The AeroPress is an alternative way to make coffee, American style or Espresso style for use in lattes, cappucinos and other espresso-based drinks. AeroPress brews 1-4 cups per pressing. Ideal water temperature and faster brewing yields rich flavour with lower acidity and without bitterness. Its total-immersion system permits extraction at a moderate temperature and a short brew time. Water and coffee are mixed together for 10 seconds, then gentle air pressure pushes the mix through a micro-filter in just 20 seconds, which avoids bitterness. The air pressure also gently squeezes the last goodness from the coffee, further enriching the flavour. The total brewing time of only 30 seconds results in an exceptionally smooth brew. Includes 350 filter papers, coffee scoop, funnel and stirrer.
I was informed about the AeroPress by two very efficient and helpful members of staff at your Bournemouth branch. It is now on my birthday list as a 'must have' items.

I purchased mine from your Manchester store and I must say how easy the AeroPress is to use and the coffee taste is the best I have ever tasted. My only problem is where to purchase the filters from as there does not seem to be any in the Whittards shops or on line.

I received mine for a Christmas present and couldn't wait to try it out! It's a fantastic portable coffee maker which is easy to use, clean, the only 'waste' can be recycled into the compost bin. Dispensing the coffee into your favourite mug or cup couldn't be easier! Whilst I agree with James regarding the lack of a carrying bag - this would be very useful if taking on holiday etc, it in no way detracts from the ease of use of this superb portable coffee maker!
I am now recommending that anyone who loves real coffee whilst on the move should invest!!!
Excellent coffee, great price but...

I bought mine from Whittards in Westfield shopping Centre, Shepherds the other day and I didn't get a carrier bag. This is annoying because it is a portable type system and I often take it with me to the office.
If I provide a receipt, can you send me one please?
This product really makes excellent coffee; make sure the beans are ground on No.2 or you get coffee suitable for filters. Some supermarket coffees grinds are too course.
Another excellent thing about this is just how easy it is to use and clean. The coffee is left in a little puck and can be expelled out the bottom into a waste unit without even touching it.
Really a fantastic product - the only thing is, it really needs a bag as described here.
